The Loc Error code indicates that the Control Lock has been enabled. When the control is locked, the dryer will not start or operate. Some models will look like the following:

Press and hold the Control Lock Key for 3 seconds to unlock the machine. You will notice the machine count down from 3-2-1. The control lock may be a stand alone key, or it could be a dual function key paired with another button like Damp Dry, Steam, etc. Press and hold that button (not the text below it) for three seconds to unlock.

See your Use & Care Guide for your specific model.
